Either it happened off camera, or they didn't want to show it :^) I just
finished watching ABC's coverage of it and he was doing fine for the 10
seconds he was on...

Here's some trivia for you all: according to the parade hosts, Sonic was
the second largest (in terms of helium used) balloon in the parade
(Garfield was first), and Macy's parade is the second biggest user of
helium in the country (world?) - the US government is first.
